Laughton will make the team. Im confident in that. I think even at his current level he can be a more effective option than Wellwood, Mcginn, Sestito or even Rinaldo.

I honestly think this could be a great lineup.

hartnell-giroux-schenn (great at both ends of the ice, and with giroux, obviously fantastic offensive production)
briere-couturier-voracek (Couts and Jake both make up for Brieres lack of defensive ability, and this line also has very good offensive potential. i really think this line could be awesome)
simmonds-laughton-read (very irritating line that can hit, fly, grind and create crash and bang chances, but with a good amount of skill as well. Laughton and Read cover up Simmonds defensive woes)
rinaldo/wellwood-talbot-fedotenko (very good defensive 4th line that can hit and will give you 110% every night, and talbot and rusty can also generate offense as well. good speed too.)

maybe for games where a legit shutdown line is more of a need, you swap Read and Briere, or Schenn and Briere and use

Coburn - Meszaros (very mobile, steady and big. 2 hard shots from the point)
Timonen - Schenn (positional play of timonen will help schenn. well rounded pairing, and they each bring what the other lacks in some regards)
Grossmann - Gervais (grossmann is a solid positional player that should limit the shortcomings of 1 of his 2 or 3 potential partners)
